6 Steps To Landing Your Dream Job

3 minute read

Tom Mason

What are your specialist areas?

Product, Digital Marketing, User Experience, eCRM and Engineering.

Why should you be my Guru?

It’s a mission of mine to challenge the often questionable perception of what a recruiter is, operating in an ethical, consultative and tech smart manner. I always endeavour to over-deliver value, insights and results for my clients and candidates.

After almost a decade helping Digital leaders attract the top performing ‘passive’ talent in Australia, I have built an unrivalled network within the local Product, User Experience, Digital Marketing and Engineering space.

What’s your background?

I am Scottish-born (Edinburgh) with a clan of four, and I have been involved in Digital since CD-Rom’s were the thing.

After graduating from university in Edinburgh (BA Marketing) I was tasked with launching Scotland’s first SMS permission-based marketing service. I worked agency side within the digital marketing and data space, had a stint client-side within the music industry in a national promotions/social/ marketing role before founding a boutique agency startup developing mobile applications in Sydney.

So, yes, I have sat firmly on the other side of the fence and feel your pains.

Why did you join Digital Gurus?

I found my calling in recruitment around a decade ago building a Digital desk at Tenth House and took to it like a duck to water. I then went onto start up my old agency, Beagle Digital, which I ran for four years.

Digital Gurus were a competitor that I admired from afar for many years (there weren’t many). They aligned with my ethos. I saw that they walked-the-digital-innovation-talk unrestrained by the shackles of conformity. I was impressed by there social engagement, consultative style and reputation for being at the cutting edge of the industry, the subject matter ‘go-to” guys in digital recruitment.

The opportunity came up to join the Guru’s, and I decided now was the time to stop flying solo and instead play my part in a more significant growing concern, within an outfit that likes to play the game in the same way I do.

Likes:

Family time with hyper boys, biohacking my body and mind with quirky activities like Ice baths, saunas, fasting and hanging upside down. I love to read, cook and I am a passionate muso. I am always investigating emerging technologies (I run a Blockchain meetup) and also like to bushwalk, travel and hang with interesting people.

Dislikes:

People who are uncurious or don’t listen. Commercial breaks. Climate Deniers. Wrap around sunglasses. Lemming mentality.
